This is somewhat annoying... The BIOS changed the fan speed so that now it's quite often between 1100 RPM and 1200 RPM. However... At that range fan motors makes somewhat annoying noise and it's much more audible than even at 1350 RPM. It looks like I have to use custom fan curve (or more like force it to run at 1350 RPM once it hits 58c, thus it's actually a bit more aggressive but still quieter).

- As I read  a previous post (don't remember the page) about the thickness from a mod of forum told is 1mm.
 
- On gamernexus.net write that the kit include:
  • "Narrow" thermal pad for inductors: ~1.8mm x ~27mm x ~109mm
  • "Wide" thermal pad for rear-side of PCB: ~2mm x ~56mm x ~109mm
  • Thermal compound. Ours was 5W/mK, but the kits will vary based on supply.
το another point of the page write:
 
-That kit is provided free to affected EVGA customers, but you could also buy your own thermal pads (~$7) of comparable size if EVGA cannot fulfill a request. When open the link the pads thinkness is 1.5mm
 
So do we know the exactly thickness of the pads, is 1mm or 1.5mm or 2mm?


1mm

I got some 1.5mm coming tomorrow which I'll be using to replace the VRAM and mosfet pads with. I'll take some pics with some off cuts to show the contact made.
 
Think a few others are in the same boat as me and need to know what will work and what won't (eg 1.5mm or worth just going to 2mm)

Interesting, I applied the update for my 1070 FTW card, the card runs 10C cooler and half the RPM it did before (idle) (using the second bios)
 
And running pretty quiet as well. My coil whine has since gone too, so happy about that.
 
Running games, the temp climbs to about 45 C, will test with heaven benchmark and see how things go, but so far, the card is fine.

Well I got my thermal pads but I got one of the earlier packets, so no new VRAM pads. I'm still experiencing artifacts during game play and I'm worried about the chips having issues going forward. Before I ask for an RMA I'd like to know if I'll receive a new card or a remanufactured card. I really feel like after all this I should receive a new one. I purchased my card at the end of July.

So I didn't imagine it. My 1070SC has the same strange whirring noise at exactly 33% (1210rpm) in EVGA Precision. At 32% (1170rpm) and 34% (1240rpm) there's no noise. Very odd.
Thankfully on my card the fans remain below 1100rpm @64C, which is the max temp in the games I tested. Maybe because I have a sidemounted fan in my case pointed directly at the graphics card?

 I feel for you maybe ask for the memory pads and try them out before you RMA the card, your call of course, EVGA has deeply disappointed me, I will think twice before I buy from them again. >:(

Yeah this is absolute bs. I'll probably get one of the RMA'd cards with issues where they just apply the thermal pads, throw it on a test bench to make sure it turns on, and send it out. I tried letting them take the easy way out by mailing the thermal pads but even that wasn't a full fix. I'd have to wait for new ones. I've been having issues for months but chalked it up to drivers, man was I wrong.

The rep told me the recertifieds are tested and have a three year warranty, but I really don't care, this was your oversight not mine! I shouldn't be given a second hand replacement. I was okay up till now, but at this point I think only a full return and refund would make things any better.

You are right to ask for a refund but EVGA only does them within 30 days of purchase and charges a 15% restocking fee. :|

A few more 1060 BIOS's added to first post, including one for 1060 SC with a slightly more aggressive fan curve.

I commend EVGA on how they are handling these issues and your response times. Top notch and I don't regret ordering my first EVGA GPU even with this small hiccup :).

So I currently have a 1080 I bought a month ago running 86.04.17.00.80 BIOS, this new BIOS that fixes the heat issue is 86.04.3b.00.82 , I don't know much about numbers but isn't that a previous version compared to my BIOS? do I still have to update?

Question to EVGA_JacobF
 
I bought an EVGA GTX 1080 FTW ACX3.0 3-4 weeks ago and I'm waiting for the thermal pad mod. I also use the new updated vBIOs. Basically I'll use all the options EVGA provides to make the card safe and cool. I hope I will not have to resort to warranty service hence I will do every option EVGA gives me to make sure the card will be safe. Since I don't have the skills to install the pads I will give this responsibility to the computer store where I bought the card - they are professionals had agreed to do this for me for free and they will follow this EVGA's provided manual for installing the pads.
This manual:

 
I was thinking to use the Arctic MX-4 instead of that provided by EVGA to ensure the GPU runs even cooler in addition to the VRM and VRAM oriented thermal pads provided by EVGA and the updated vBIOS. The thing is that I don't OC my card as it is already factory OCed (that's the reason I paid extra for a FTW version) . I'm planning on running the card only on its factory default clocks speeds and voltage. Some would say that I don't need the MX-4 if I don't overclock but I thought that cooler GPU temps are always welcomed and the MX-4 doesn't cost much.
 
My question is this:
 
Can I use the Arctic MX-4 thermal paste instead of the thermal paste provided by EVGA without voiding warranty.
Or let me ask this this way: Will using a thermal paste other than that provided by EVGA void warranty?
 

 
Thanks in advance

No it is not. 


Meaning... No it is not a previous version and I have to update?

Meaning, it is a newer version.  Whether you update or not is up to you.  My personal opinion is that you should update the bios and either perform the thermal pad mods yourself, or RMA the card to EVGA so they can send you a new one.  They will cross ship to you, so it really is a no hassle procedure.

Cool thanks, yeah already ordered the pads, but will update bios as well, cheers

I know you asked Jacob, but as long as you use any quality-mainstream paste that IS NOT conductive i.e. Artic Silver you are golden. I would highly recommend MX-4 as its what I used on my 980ti & my cpu.

Are the thermal pads that are being sent out going to include the VRAM pads in addition to the baseplate and backplate pads?

No it's not. That's for the installation of the thermal pads over the VRM area.
 
I'm talking about the VRAM (IE. memory) pads they are supposed to be including now in the kit!
 
Jacob appears to have just linked to the original installation guide that has been around for a while.
 
Quote "New guide up that includes memory thermal pad install"
 
PS. To replace the pads on the VRAM. This will involve removing the centre plate as well. Then remove the old pads, add the new ones and finally replace the centre plate.

You are mistaken mike.....




Don't think I am friend. The pads in the linked installation guide are for cooling the VRM area. The VRAM modules are under the centre plate surrounding the GPU.
 
The guide that Jacob links to is the original guide and has been around for a week or more.

As soon as you open that link is the accessory list....note the "3 x VRAM Thermal Pads" illustration.
That is followed with disassembly instructs etc.
Reading is fundamental

Here, since you obviously don't read good.
 

5) Remove the baseplate and set it aside. Peel off the 8 (eight) VRAM thermal pads on the baseplate, outlined in red.
...
8) Install the included VRAM thermal pads directly to the memory chips, making sure to remove the plastic on both sides.
